The 52 Project – a portrait series of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013
So this is a total cheat ’52′ post….because all of these photos were taken with my iphone….and we all know that’s against the rules with this portrait series! ha! HOWEVER….I missed this week (I have my excuses) so this is my attempt at making up for it. If you follow me on instagram….you’ve probably already seen all of these over the last few weeks. But if you don’t, I thought some of these might make you laugh. The girl is a riot…..and growing up like it’s her job.
1 / Bam (our cat) dodging a Rylee squeeze…the poor guy is always on the run / 2 / The best face. maybe ever. Yes, she is in a diaper in the pool and no, we didn’t let her go all the way in / 3 / raising the roof for sunshine / 4 / just two of the most precious people I know / 5 / a day at the beach with the seagulls / 6 / the sheer joy of discovering sponge bob in ice cream form (thank you ice cream truck lady for making her world) / 7 / little lady, beach bound / 8 / witnessing some serious flirtation going on….boyfriends and lollipops!
Sam and I leave today for Texas!! I’m SO excited to be able to spend some QT with my hubs, but also kind of dreading leaving Ry for so long. 5 days is not SO long…..but it’s the longest i’ve gone and it sure does feel like forever when you spend every day with that special little someone. Of course, she would choose her grandma over me any day….so I’m hoping she won’t even miss us. Well, maybe a little, but then that’s just me being selfish.

A new watercolor illustration inspired by Isaiah 46:4 -
” I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
Resting in this truth today.

(How do you like Rylee’s photo bomb at the bottom there!? ha. Love her.)
So, I made it guys. My bangs are officially long enough to pin back. This calls for celebration! I really didn’t think i’d make it. Those bad boys have been the death of me the last few months, and every other day I’ve been tempted to chop them. But here we are! (and yet, still, sometimes I just want them to be like this again). But the husband likes them long, SO…i’m riding it out. What do you think!? Long…..or blunt? Such an important issue, I know. haha. I think i’ll always have a thing for blunt cut bangs. They are my comfort zone. But we all know we need to get out of that every now and then!
I got these fabulous cutout boots from Choies. They have more of a pointed toe than I am used to…but they are growing on me! I’ve been wanting a pair for a while now. Below is my wishlist roundup. I say boots are appropriate all year around….and these cutout options are making me feel even better about that opinion!
1. Rachel Comey Dazze in Charcoal Perforated
2. Shakuhachi Cutout Tassel Boot
3. Sam Edelman Petty Whitewashed Booties
4. Ecote Scaled Leather Ankle Boot
5. Jeffrey Campbell Everly Cutout Boot
6. Jeffrey Campbell Gallant Ankle Boot
7. Triple Chain Moto Boot
8. Modern Vice X Natalie + Dylana Suarez Jett Boot
